19 September 2011 to 21 September 2011 Conference

Causality and Explanation in the Sciences

Causality and causal inference play a central role in the sciences. Explanation is one of the central goals of scientific research. And scientific explanation requires causal knowledge. At least, these are well-known tenets in present-day philosophy of science. In this...

On second order propositional logic of open subsets of the real line

It is known that the algebra of open subsets of the real line constitutes a sound and complete semantics for intuitionistic propositional logic, IPC. IPC has PSPACE complete set of tautologies. However, if we add quantification over propositions then the resulting logic,...

Doctoral Defense Christian Strasser, Promotor: Joke Meheus and Diderik Batens
10 December 2010 Lecture

Relevant Logic and Classical Proofs

Adaptive logicians have long treated mathematical theories using non-monotonic logical techniques. Other non-classical logicians are just starting to come around to this idea. In order to have a set theory that is powerful enough, for example, to act as a basis for model...
